Who is Eric Popper ?

Shocking dash cam footage shows the moment a man draws his gun and shoots another driver during a highway rage incident in Miami.

The incident begins when Eric Popper, 30, decides to intercept another driver on I-95 in Miami-Dade County, while he sings to the music playing in his car.

Video

In the video, Popper then looks in his rear view mirror to check on the car, now following it, before reacting, saying ‘Oh, fuck you’ after they honked at him.

He continues to monitor the car behind him, before reaching into the center armrest of his Toyota Venza and pulling the gun out of it.

Arrested and Charges

He can then be seen waiting for the other driver, who was allegedly gesturing at him multiple times, to walk past him before shooting his vehicle 11 times.

The other driver was reportedly driving a black Toyota Camry at the time of the incident, which took place on June 21 around 7 a.m. Both drivers were traveling south.

Popper, a civilian fire inspector who works for the Miami Beach Fire Department, turned himself in to the Florida Highway Patrol after quitting his job on July 21.

He was released from jail on bond and faced felony charges, including aggressive assault with a firearm.

The man’s attorney, Robert Gershman, told local media that his client acted wildly after thinking he was being shot.

“You hear a bang on Mr. Popper’s car, similar to a gunshot, which precipitated the entire incident, so in this matter, the audio and video evidence we believe exonerates him,” Gershman told NBC Miami.

Investigation

I just got shot. My car was hit,” Popper can be heard saying in another dash cam video.

The other driver involved in the altercation told investigators he threw a water bottle at Popper’s vehicle as he passed it.

Both the victim and Popper were taken into custody after the incident and called 911. Their respective vehicles were damaged by bullets from the gunfire.
